Winter Family Festival




Celebrate the Holidays at the Winter Family Festival

While these are the dog days of summer in Studio City, CA, the community will soon have tons of snow with the return of the Studio City Residents Association’s Sixth Annual Winter Family Festival and Festival of Giving. This highly popular event will be held at Studio City Recreation Center (aka “Beeman Park”) on Sunday, December 11, 2016 from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Studio City Recreation Center is located at 12621 Rye Street, Studio City, CA 91604.

Last year, more than 5,000 people got into the holiday spirit and gave back to the community as well at this popular free event, which is presented to the community by the Studio City Residents Association and Studio City Recreation Center. The 2015 event, the largest to-date, saw thousands playing in more than 70 tons of snow, with slides, snowball fights and snowman making.

Guests attending the event donated more than 500 pieces of clothing, more than 250 pounds of food, as well as many boxes of books, toys and pet items to the onsite Festival of Giving, which benefitted the North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry, St. Charles Service Center, the LAPD North Hollywood Division Gift and Food Drive, Pet Orphans, Aviva Family and Children’s Services and Iris Blossom Charities. Guests also enjoyed samples from local restaurants, craft-making, free photos with Santa, food trucks and many other activities.

Winter Family festival attendees also enjoyed A Taste of the Holidays, which featured free samples from local restaurants. Restaurant participants included Chin Chin, Gangadin, Lemonade, Local Ice, Mendocino Farms, Pizza Rev, The Village, Tuning Fork, Chantel & Bella and The Front Yard. Samples were also provided by Blue Can Water.

Attendees were regaled with musical performances by Tom Kenny and the Hi-Seas (Kenny is the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants), Campbell Hall World Drumming Ensemble, CHAMPS Charter High School for the Arts Level 3/4 Choir, Carpenter Cougar Chorus, Schoolcraft & Murray, the Studio City Recreation Center’s Hip Hop Classes, Harvard Westlake’s A Capella Group and the Studio City Recreation Center’s Guitar Band.
